I know a lot of collectors grumbled about the price initially, so this is a nice break if you’re still into “collecting them all!”
Canada’s Mego Gathering is this Sunday in Burlington Ontario Canada. I don’t need to tell you how normal you’ll feel meeting with your herd, very cathartic.
Plus free trading cards and it is a vintage toy show too.
The MegoMuseum broke the news yesterday about this Emerald City Comic’s exclusive Riddler figure from the 1966 Batman series. Unlike past exclusive Figures Toy Company items, ECC went all out and had a new head sculpted and it’s pretty damned righteous.
Such good deeds deserve reward:

I was tempted by the earlier offerings but resisted, even though I love the Kresge designs but this wave with 3 all new characters is another matter…..
Mego Museum launched another video short this week and it’s a look at the Comic Action Heroes Mangler. One of the weirdest toys to come out of Mego. Basically, it’s point is to murder the Green Goblin, that is dark.
From issue #92 “Dude where’s my Thor” written by McCallum, Aclin and Oat. More after the Jump….
Mego Museum reporting in their exclusive #MMFTCNEWS that the 2.0 version of “Mego 8″ Superheroes: World’s Greatest Toys” by Benjamin Holcomb.
If you’re a Mego head and you don’t own a copy of this book, go and buy it now.
Figures Toy Company is offering some pretty sweet deals on the book, including discounts on purchases on their toy items, so if you’ve been holding off on a purchase, this is a good time.
If you’re into Mego and DC Comics, then Christmas just came early as Figures Toy Company just released shots of their 8 inch versions of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mary Marvel figures on their facebook page.
Personally I’m pretty pumped for these, especially more female heroes.
Lots of discussion going on at the Figures Toy Company message board that’s part of the Mego Museum.
You can preorder these at the Figures Toy Company website.
Apologies for the double linking, the MegoMuseum URL is having some issue with Facebook and we’re not really sure why. If you’re an expert on FB and like us, drop us a line.
Every Mego collector has probably wondered at one point what the Mego factory looked like and how everything was made. Thanks to this rare document (the 1978 Mego International Shareholders Report to be exact, which we’ll soon share) we have a glimpse into the Hong Kong wonderland that was Lion Rock.
Due to popular demand, Benjamin is offering limited edition prints of this striking WGSH poster he designed, it’ll measure 18″ by 24″. If you want one, better get on it now as these will be a one time print on demand situation.
To get on the list requires a (reasonable IMO) $5 deposit that goes towards your purchase.
“This rare picture from 1977 shows where all the magic happened, the Mego boardroom with notables such as President Martin Abrams, VP Neal Kublan, Product Design Manager Vinnie Baiera, Art director Marty Harrison and founder D. David Abrams in attendance.
I’d love to know what they were discussing that day.“
When i woke up this morning I had no inclination that it would be an expensive day but that was before Distinctive Dummies announced a small run of figures based on Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I’ve been waiting years for Carl.
If Carl wasn’t enough, there is also The Night Strangler from the TV Movie of the same name.
Aaaaaannnd a Two Pack of Karl and Janos that I must own Dammit!
As always get them now because once they’re gone, they ain’t coming back.
From issue #30- I guess it’s too late for the exclusive “Seven of Nine” figure but we can still laugh at this, more after the jump:
Man you can not reach farther back than this, from Issue #2 we have the Great Jawa Hunt written by the Toyfare Staff. More after the jump.
Deadpool and from what I see on the side of his box at SDCC, the Punisher and a second Spider-Man set are due next.
I’m pretty oblivious of this character but I do know that he is really, really popular. Sure I want a Green Goblin set super bad but I’m going to trust Diamond that they probably looked at the sales of their other Deadpool merch and decided he was a solid bet.
I know some Mego fans aren’t thrilled with this choice but honestly, I’ve never been upset about not spending money, so i don’t get that.
